Anyone know the longest period of time this has occured? I thought I read somewhere that a glider went 6 months....

Emmet was neutered the end of January & we're now on our second litter! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" />

[:"green"]I believe that an embryo can stay in stasis (embryonic diapause) for up to a year. The longest I have actually heard of is about 6 months...

SURPRISE!!!!!!!!! Congrats on the unexpected bundles of joy.

I believe (ok, I've read but have no solid proof) that can keep the embrios in stasis for up to a year.

How does this work with having two litters though?

He was neutered Jan 20th...
First set of twins were in Feb. & didn't make it <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />
Then we have at least one joey now...

So I'm trying to figure out if this is a case of Embryonic Diapause or if something went wrong with his procedure...

Can they have more than 1 litter held at a time? The #'s don't add up right for her to have gotten pregnant before or after (before it's totally effective) his procedure so it either has to be ED or else he's going back in!!

[:"green"]My understanding is that they can keep multiple joeys in stasis and only release one or two at a time <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" />

If he was neutered Jan 20, he could have inpregnated her just prior to neutering, which would have resulted in joeys IP in Feb. Then, the next set of joeys were held in stasis when the first set went IP in Feb. and were released later, when momma was ready.

Because females have more then one uterus, they can keep them at different stages and release one or more at a time.

When males are neutered, the testicals are removed. Since this is where sperm is made, don't think they could have got it wrong. It isn't like a vesectomy where they only tie off the tubes to prevent sperm from exiting the body.

OY! I got him neutered for a reason!! I hope there aren't any more joeys to come but I'll have to wait and see.

My vet said that he doubted it but there could've been a little bit of skin(?) left intact. If she starts showing signs of having another joey I'll be bringing him in & the vet will just double check everything I suppose... Either way the vet & I both think it's probably ED <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

I have been through this so I know the shock. I sold my Scooby and 4 months later had a batch of joeys, and he wasn't anywhere around them, so this does happen. However when I seen that Scooby wasn't properly getting taken care of I bought him back, and he has been with me ever since. This does happen, it is natural, but it sure is a shock when you least expect it. Congrats
